the cook(book)ing school: lowfat ethnic cuisine

Indian Lowfat Cooking by Roshi Razzaq

I love Indian Food, and after reading several other cookbooks focusing on Indian Cuisine, I had not realized how fattening some Indian food could be until I read this Indian Lowfat Cooking. And although this book is a little dated, I still appreciate it and will definitely add it to my cookbook shelf as another guide on my path to healthy cooking.

the cook(book)ing school: take me to chinatown


Martin Yan‘s Chinatown Cooking by Martin Yan

I love this cookbook because it’s not just a cookbook, it’s a travel guide through all of the different Chinatown’s and great Chinese restaurants around the world. What I also like about this book is that Martin Yan provides with a primer on Chinese cooking, the primary ingredients, and a history lesson all at once.  I would definitely add this to my cookbook shelf or to my travel log.


the cook(book)ing school: got gluten-free?

Gloriously Gluten-Free Cookbook by Vanessa Maltin

Although this cookbook is lacking some of the fabulous photos I love so well in my cookbooks, what I do like about it, is that it’s fully of recipes that utilize only gluten-free ingredients and that it supplies us with a list of recommended vendors and brands where we can find these products. And that fact that all of the recipes focus on three of my favorite cuisines: Italian, Asian, and Mexican, I will definitely be adding this to my cookbook shelf.
